Something WICKED this way comes.... 

Macbeth opens in one month. To get ready, MHS Theatre is selling $3.00 tickets at all lunches this week. That is 50% less than if students wait to buy at the door.


Don't miss out on one of Shakespeare's bloodiest tragedies and paired with some amazing sword fighting and some of Shakespeare's best poetry. 


Several MHS students’ artwork were accepted into the 2018 Young Artists' Showcase exhibit at the St. Louis Artist Guild. March 8 - March 31, 2018. Young Artists' Showcase is a juried, all-media exhibition of artwork created by high school students between 15 and 19 years old residing within 150 miles of the St. Louis Artists' Guild. The annual Young Artists' Showcase has supported artistically inclined students for over 60 years. The Guild provides an opportunity to exhibit in a professional gallery. This is a juried show meaning that participants’ work was judged by a juror, Ruth Reese, and selected to be in the art show. Click HERE to view their featured pieces!


The last day to order a yearbook is February 28.  Don't miss your chance to save your memories for this year!  Go to to order.  Surprise!  We will have video links in the yearbook this year!  Pictures throughout the book will have embedded links on them that you can view for free on the HP Reveal app on your smart phone.  Look for sample video links posted around the school to get more info and sneak peeks of the footage!


Attention students that are interested in taking AP tests: The AP sign up sheets are now available in the Counseling Office. Please ask Mrs. Raney for a copy of the form. They are due no later than Wednesday, March 7th.


A+ Seniors:

We need a tutor to stay after some school some nights to help a student with their homework and English.  Let Mrs. Luck know asap if any of you are interested. 


For students interested in taking Advanced Placement (AP) exams in the spring of 2018, testing will be held during the first two weeks of May, as scheduled by the College Board. However, beginning this spring, the testing location will be at St. Louis Community College South County campus (4115 Meramec Bottom Road). Students planning to test in any area, except foreign language or Music Theory, should plan on taking their AP exam(s) at the STLCC South County campus. Our purpose for making this change is to give our students the best opportunity to maximize their scores by minimizing distractions, improving testing conditions, and eliminating logistical issues that exist when testing at Mehlville High School. Due to the technology needed to complete the foreign language exams, their testing locations will remain at Mehlville High School.



Did you miss breakfast?  Feeling hungry?  Want something to eat NOW?  Beginning Monday, Grab & Go Breakfast is expanding.  Chef Nancy will now offer the chance to pick up a quick breakfast at the Grab & Go location next to Gym A during travel time after your first class of the day.  Stop by for some quick nutrition!
